I can honestly say that I have never seen such changes in the recruitment of IT contractors for the NHS and all in the last 6 months. This is, of course, due to the closure of the Primary Care Trusts (PCT's) in about 1 week's time.

These changes will make way to the new Clinical Commissioning Units (CSU's) and Clinical Commissioning Groups from April 1st. The need for specialist skills including 2nd,3rd line support, NHS Project and Programme Managers, Information & Data Analysts is growing steadily by the day and doesn't look as if it will slow down for many months to come.
